7:03 pm
@a lot of them are three day, @five days. @we're here almost ten days. @>> reporter: what's different @about this year's show? @>> a lot of reaction. @but all the cars are new. @everything under one roof. @thousands of vehicles to see. @we have numerous of ride and @drives. @we have an auction coming up. @we'll talk about that later in @the show. @and you know what? @a lot of interaction with the @consumers. @now you can see the vehicles, @touch the vehicles, drive the @vehicles, and see what kind of @technology is being put in the @vehicles. @>> reporter: past year, i know @you talked with customers, @obviously. @are most looking for cars? @or is this just a fun day, fun @night? @>> it's both. @they're here to compare and ask @questions. @you can take them for a ride @off the premises. @it goes back to the dealership. @ @and there's a whole other @subset that says, hey, this is @entertainment. @it's been warm. @that's okay. @see the cars.
7:04 pm
@things for kids to do. @they're all here for one thing, @to see the cars. @>> reporter: we've had this @discussion the past two or @three years. @>> yeah, we have! @>> reporter: this is the spring @kickoff for dealers. @how important is this for them? @ @>> it is. @it is vitally important for the @northeast ohio car dealers. @there's different incentives, @different things they're doing @to attract you to the brand. @the cars are really built much @better than they were in the @past. @now you have to differentiate @yourself. @you have technology, design, @fuel economy. @some of the things in people's @purchase decisions. @that's what people are here to @figure out. @>> reporter: you have the auto @show on our butt, i understand. @ @you once sold auto tickets as a @kid? @[ laughter ] @>> who told you? @>> reporter: i won't say! @>> i actually cleaned cars in @high school. @>> reporter: oh! @>> that was my first job. @when i graduated from john @carol locally, i got tickets @and got through the ranks of @the association. @i've been running it for five @years. @>> reporter: and here you are. @>> yep. @>> reporter: give us the

@how long, what time? @>> starting today all the way @through march 6th everyday of @the week. @11:00 to 10:00 on sundays 11:00 @to 8:00. @adults are $13. @seniors and preteens are $11. @always free parking. @>> millionaire's row, we'll @talk about them. @but you can't ride and drive @those, right? @>> oh, no! @that. @and you and i aren't getting in @them either. @[ laughter ] @year. @>> thank you. @ as we know, here in @northeast ohio, we're proud of @the ford motor plant and at the @koa boost engine me -- eco @boost engine they make here. @we have great news to the @economy in northeast ohio. @>> reporter: ford's all new f- @150raptor and f-150 lineup will @have cle under the hood. @the 3.5ecoboost engine comes @with a big investment from @ford.
7:06 pm
@this money in the cleveland @plants to bring those power @trains to market speaks volumes @to popularity and ecoboost. @>> reporter: a small high-tech @engine that uses less fuel, @reduces emissions and requires @less power. @in 2009, the ecoboost restarted @the idle engine plan with only @one model. @currently, seven different @engines are in the ecoboost @line with three more to be @added by 2020, this according @to ford. @this new investment will create @and retain 150 jobs. @>> i think it's fantastic that @new technology is coming to @cleveland. @it's the hardwork of the @membership that's brought this @work here. @>> last year alone we sold @about 1 million ecoboost @engines. @so just makes sense with the @demand that we expand to a @second general rigs, all new @version that will frankly have
7:07 pm
@that will have better @performance and fuel economy. @>> reporter: one thing i @learned today i didn't know, @cleveland was actually known as @motor city until 1908 when the @city named detroit took over. @we talked about manufacturing. @a lot of designing takes place @here as well. @plenty of graduates at the @cleveland institute of art play @a part in what happens. @one example is the chrysler @pacifica. @the goal was to keep the @features that people love about @the pacifica but change the @look and medical marijuana @people feel better driving it @around. @she has one favorite feature, @she told us about. @>> the hands-free sliding door @and lift gate opening. @and what you can do is, say -- @i don't know how many times @i've had a baby in my arms and @grocery bag, and i have to find @my key fob and figure out how
7:08 pm
@now you can wave your foot @underneath the sliding door and @the door would open. @and the same for the lift gate. @>> reporter: and she not only @designed the interior and @exterior but a look on @chrysler's current logo. @not a bad job there as well. @no matter what the design, @before you plug down your hard @earned cash for a car, you @probably want to take it for a @spin. @and this year at the car show, @you can do that. @our brandon simmons is live at @the drive and check it out @section of the auto show! @[ laughter ] @>> reporter: and he's here to @tell us more about that. @brandon, what are you driving @today? @>> i think i was going for the @aston martin, but they wouldn't @let me. @>> no! @[ laughter ] @>> but most the people, @obviously, you're looking for @the cars. @a lot of them, you can't @afford. @but if you're trying to buy the @car, there's 11 manufacturers @really trying to get you in the @driver's seat or passenger seat @to show you what it's like. @so all those brands letting you @ride and drive. @>> reporter: the first thing
7:09 pm
@show is take a look around, get @your barings, and find your @favorite brand. @then you take them for a spin. @there's more cars available for @ride and drive than in years @before. @popular. @>> we're in the jeep wrangler. @this is the hard rock edition. @>> reporter: for this course, @i'm sitting in the passenger @seat letting the pros show us @how it's done. @>> set up our traction and @torc. @pull it over there -- tork. @pull it there. @>> reporter: we went over bumps @i hope you never hit in @northeast ohio. @>> what do customers say about @the ride and drive? @>> they love it! @super busy. @that's the best part about it. @getting to see their reaction @and seeing their reaction as @well. @>> reporter: ram will also take @you for a ride on their course. @let other brands take you @outside and let you drive the @car for yourself. @brands like toyota, kia, and @mazda whose matter is driving @matters.
7:10 pm
@you want to take it for a spin, @there's some rules. @in most cases, you have to be @18 years old, have a valid @license, and may have to take a @breathalyzer test. @no alcohol allowed. @if you can't meet the criteria, @just let them drive you. @>> everybody gets out with a @smile on their face. @>> reporter: and, yes, that @includes me. @>> reporter: now, some of the @brands i didn't get to mention @there include ford, subaru, @chevy, also the rest of the @fiat and chrysler family. @all those car brands will let @you get in, ride and drive as @long as you're here. @i don't know. @i mean, we had a lot of fun @while we were over there on @that jeep course. @and if you get a chance, russ, @make sure you get over there @and try it out as well. @it's fun no matter how many @times you do it. @>> it looks like a lot of fun. @you're going to come back and @drive it, correct? @>> i'll definitely come back. @hopefully we'll get something @faster outside and erase the @airplanes next door. @[ laughter ] @>> i think you just sealed your @ticket now. @that's probably not going to @happen, brandon.

7:16 pm
@so, yeah, there is that. @there's that in every auction. @there's always something that @blows your mind that it @actually did that well. @>> reporter: most expensive car @ever crossed your way? @>> most expensive car that's @ever crossed my way was about @50,000. @>> reporter: 50,000. @all right. @all right. @when you're not actually doing @the auction action you're in @the audience as well. @>> right, right. @you can call them ringmen, @floor personnel. @but the main term is a ringman. @>> reporter: and you're telling @people, you sure you want to @bid that? @>> you're trying to create an @auction near bring energy so he @can spot bids. @>> reporter: how does one get @in this line of work? @>> i think you got to be in @tune with what is really going @on. @i went to auctions as a small @kid. @and i grew up. @and actually how i got involved @in this, i was a career @firefighter for the city of @wooster. @retired in 2004. @we were screwing around at the @fire station one day.
